  • This paper focuses on the issue of reporting errors in subjective health measures. We state assumptions under which we can use relatively simple methods to assess the relative importance of state dependent reporting errors in individual responses to health questions. The methods proposed in this paper could be used directly to purge reporting biases from the subjective health responses to generate unbiased measures of health that can be used in subsequent analyses. The methods are applied on Dutch data , It may be clear from the discussion in...

  • This lab exercise focuses on the basics of IP subnet masks and their use with TCP/IP networks. The subnet mask can be used to split up an existing network into subnetworks, or subnets. Some of the primary reasons for subnetting are the following: • Reduce the size of the broadcast domains, which creates smaller networks with less traffic • Allow LANs in different geographical locations to communicate through routers • Provide improved security by separating one LAN from another Routers separate subnets, and determine when a packet can go from one subnet to another.

  • In 1993, the first of the GIS Research U.K. (GISRUK) conferences was held at the University of Keele. Before that, U.K. GIS conferences had been very broad-based, bringing together the entire spectrum of people who created and used spatial data and the software to process the data. While such conferences were very valuable, it was felt that there was also a need for an academic conference where the focus would be purely on research.

  • Before market segmentation can take place, the relevant market has to be defined, meaning the product related, geographical and temporal boundaries of that market have to be fixed. 21 Any such definition has to look at the market through the consum- ers’ eyes, because the consumer makes decisions based on the evaluation of alterna- tives and substitutes.

  • What does a Distributer do? While Distributers are invisible to most consumers their role is to bridge the geographical gap between producer and retailer. Supermarkets and department stores couldn't exist without a complicated distribution system, capable of moving enormous amounts of product from point A – the producer to point C – the consumer. Distributors add significantly to the cost of the products we buy but they deliver a valuable service in providing access to the marketplace so producers can focus their energies on manufacturing the product.

  • Conventional approaches to health in poor countries focus on disease–specific interventions and their cost effectiveness, implemented via the path of least resistance with a strong emphasis on short term results. The upshot is that sys- temic problems which underlie poor health, failing health systems, and health inequity are circumvented. Long–term, sustainable strategies are rarely devel- oped or deployed. The crisis may change its spots, expressing itself in different diseases, populations or geographic areas, but it essentially continues unabated.

  • Because time-series studies focus on a given geographic location over a number of years, factors that are often thought to influence the health of the population, such as percentage of smokers, income level, occupational exposure to pollutants, access to medical care and age distribution, do not need to be incorporated into the analysis as they are considered to remain relatively constant within the study area over time. Typically, the only other factors aside from pollution included in these models are weather variables and seasonal controls.

  • Another closely-related dynamic is a fundamental shift that is taking place in terms of priority geographic markets. A 2011 global CEO survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC’s Growth Reimagined) found that the large majority of corporate executives have shifted their primary focus to developing markets. Although doing business in these markets is nothing new, making them the primary target market, where firms plan to invest the majority of their efforts and expect the majority of their future sales, is new and significant.

  • We focus on the recent Spanish credit cycle which largely explains the episodes of financial instability and uncertainty that the Spanish banking sector suffered during 2009 and 2010. These episodes gave, in turn, rise to the implementation of bank restructuring plans in 2010 and 2011. We characterize the sequential evolution of the credit cycle by combining information at the individual security (mortgage- backed securities, MBS, and asset-backed securities, ABS), institution (i.e. bank), and geographical (i.e. region in which each bank operates) levels.
